For those studying Edexcel’s A level Option 2 ‘The German Democratic Republic, 1949–90’ and similar modules, Anglia has developed a fully-guided tour to Berlin which examines life in the ‘socialist nation-state of workers and peasants’ better known as East Germany.
Visits will examine social change and welfare programmes, including housing, education and the changing status and role of women; repression and control, exploring the Ministry of State Security (the Stasi), its methods and activities; control of young people through the Free German Youth (FDJ); propaganda and censorship; the extent of popular support for the GDR; the SED and the Protestant churches; Western influences on the GDR, including Willy Brandt and the impact of Ostpolitik; economic stagnation in the 1980s, the end of the GDR and the collapse of the SED government in 1989 and the reunification of East and West Germany.
Thank you very much for the best Berlin trip this school has run with you. It was superb
